Is your C8 the same length as the dyna? I never checked...
My C8 is shorter. From what can see, but mine is an older unit. My D8 , from the limited time I have had with it out, has better optics then the C8 ...
Maybe it's the C8. Without another to really compare to.. say a newer unit, I cant confirm it.
One thing, i like the looks of the Dynamax over the C8. And the tripod , a Golden, a firm winner for me..
The fork mount smooth, and rock steady on the Golden tripod... a plus .
Yea I know the dynamax gets beat up for its iffy optics, and if swapping out makes it better GO FOR IT .
I wouldnt let a few Negative Nancy remarks stop, you might learn something in the process.
